As of next week two Container for Change bins will be located at the Hinderwell Road entrance near the Room 9 Heritage Building between 8:30 and 11am each morning for people who would like to donate their containers.
Please see below a description of the program and a list of eligible containers. It’s a great way to support your P&C and school community!
Containers for change
To help encourage more Western Australians to collect and return their beverage containers, Containers for Change will provide a 10-cent refund for each eligible beverage container that is returned.
The scheme aims to:
Container for Change also provides an exciting fundraising opportunity for schools, local sports clubs, community groups, charities and worthwhile causes; the scheme will also create hundreds of jobs across Western Australia.
Personalised school photo order envelopes are coming home with the students today. These need to be handed to the photographer on your child's scheduled photo day, the school will not be collecting these beforehand.
Should you wish to have sibling photos taken, please pick up an envelope from the office.
The Australian Girls Choir (AGC) will be conducting a free 30 minute assessment workshop during school hours on Monday 26 October 2020, for all interested girls from Pre-Primary through Year 6. On the day, interested girls will participate in a workshop with on of AGC’s experienced tutors, involving simple rhythm, pitch and movement activities and games. Following the workshop, they will send a personalised written report to parents of each girl who participated. The workshops are designed to be fun and non-competitive and gives girls the opportunity to experience the sorts of activities AGC offer. AGC are a proudly inclusive choir and offer all girls a position in one of the training levels of the AGC.
On Wednesday we distributed a flyer and permission slip to all girls from Pre-Primary through to Year 6. The permission slip must be submitted in order to participate.
Please return the permission slip to the school this Monday, 19 October 2020, if interested in your daughter participating.
